Cocopeat growbag

The right substrate for a large scale vegetable, cutflower or strawberry production.

Suggested use

1. For the filling use a menu, which fits to your water. If you do not have it Pro Horto would gladly make one, based on your water analysis result.

2. For the filling just stick the drippers to the plastic (make sure that the text in the growbag stays upside) and start the watering with 500 ml gifts. Make sure that the drippers stay firm. By the filling use the right volume of water accordingly the list below:

  1. Size Fertilizer (liter)
    100 x 15 x 8,5 cm 9
    100 x 20 x 8,5 cm 12
    120 x 15 x 8,5 cm 11
    120 x 20 x 8,5 cm 14
    133 x 15 x 8,5 cm 12
    133 x 20 x 8,5 cm 16
    200 x 15 x 8,5 cm 18
    200 x 20 x 8,5 cm
  2. After the growbag reached the desired volume cut the drainholes. We suggest to cut at least 2 drainholes in 100 cm - one in the lowest bottom of the growbag and another in the 2/3 of the growbag - one may cut more drainhole, even one per each plant. The size of the drainhole should be "L" shaped - 1 cm cut in the bottom and 2 cm in the side.
  3. Provided our growbag is not buffered already then the buffering process must happen before planting. The harmful Ca and Na must be exchanged with Ca and Mg and then must be washed out from the complex. Therefore a buffering menu would be helpful - if necessarry pro Horto would gladly prepare it, if we have a water analysis result.After the buffering has done, a good flush is needed to wash out the free K and Na ions. For this purpuse use your start recipe until the EC difference is less then 1 - 1,5 mS/cm2.

 

Our growbags are available in buffered (max. EC 1 mS/cm2, buffered with Ca), washed (max. EC 1,5mS/cm2),and unwashed (max. EC 2,5mS/cm2) quality.

The filling of the Optima growbags are 50% fine pith and 50% chips - this proportion allows this growbag to be irrigated similiar as a rockwool growbag. By the use of the Optima growbags we would be able to irrigate regulary even during darker periods - having a good volume of drainage it is possible to maintain a continous growth. Very important advantage is the double-layer structure of the growbag: the fine pith in the top of the slab allows the roots an enourmously fast development in the initial stage and the chips layer in the bottom ensures a stable drainage and allows the roots to be well aerated.

Suggested use: for very early and early plantation (December-January-February)

 

The Optima Coarse growbag is produced mainly for cucumber and tomato growers. The higher chips content allows us to irrigate more often without worrying that the roots of the palnts remain too wet during the dark periods.

 

Suggested use: for very early plantation and for cucumber and tomato growers

 

For the Standard growbags we use 100% pith, which is proven to be the most ideal substrate for the initial root development and provides great buffer capacity during the hot summer periods. The water retention allows the pith to save fertilizer and the taken elements would be used with a higher efficiency. During dark periods it is better to go with larger volumes, so we can maintain a good volume of drain and the substrate won't become too wet.

Suggested use: plantation started from March
